The Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible, co-published by Eerdmans and Brill, is the only major reference work describing the gods, angels, demons, spirits, and semi-divine heroes whose names occur throughout Scripture. First published in 1995 and named by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Book of 1996, this volume has now been extensively revised. Thirty articles appear in this second edition for the first time, while more than 100 articles have been brought up to date with the latest research. Written by 100 leading international scholars, the more than 400 articles in this comprehensive work cover every deity found in the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, including the Apocrypha. Each article includes discussion of the meaning of the deitys name, its religio-historical background, the relevant biblical passages, and up-to-date bibliographical information. Extensive indexes and cross-references provide easy access to the rich information found in the dictionary.
